Hatcher, Robert Anthony (06 February 1868–01 April 1944), pharmacologist, was born in New Madrid, Missouri, the son of Richard Hardaway Hatcher, an attorney, and Harriet Hinton Marr. The family had lost much in the Civil War, so Robert was raised in the home of his uncle Robert Marr, a prominent judge. He developed an interest in pharmacy and attended the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy, where he received his graduate in pharmacy degree in 1889.

In 1899 he accepted a position teaching materia medica at the Cleveland School of Pharmacy....
